The more I look at their safety choices the more I am inclined to believe we aren't going to have ball hawking safeties for the most part. They seem to want enforcers over the middle. The fact they tendered CC high says a lot.
Another view that I agree with. I see Reeves as the starter. Hutchins was allowed to leave as Smith thinks Reeves brings the total package. He is taller than Hutchins also. I commented elsewhere yesterday that I can't see Reeves coming to Htown thinking Smith would draft a starting CB. Not saying that a good CB can't be signed in 4th or 5th like Trae Williams or Darnell Terrell. That would strengthen the team.

I think the RBs start to disappear in third round. One or two LT candidates may be there in fourth.

Dadgum, I knew someone would question that. LOL! I'll see if I can find it, but I remember Kubiak mentioned something after a game. Then again, I do consume mass quantities of beer, so.......

There is a little blurb at the bottom of this article about McRee.

It basically says that he has narrowed his options down to Buffalo or Denver.

Take it FWIW.

im pretty sure simmons (and earl) are both unsigned FA's

Exactly, wanted to post my thoughts before going with the flavor of the day. My memory says a lot of folks were not too happy with Demps during the season. I remember responding to posts for Phillips to be drafted that we had a FS that had been selected to pro bowl after 8 starts and that was playing with an arm cast. I have now read the thread am happy with all the "aw, shucks, I knew he could do it all along."

I wasn't talking about FS prospects it was in reference to db's. safetys are all about intincts, Ed Reed, Bob Sanders two of the best to ever play @ their positions.

Found it. It was in Kubiaks post game quotes from the Miami game.

Quote:
(on any new injuries and DT Travis Johnson’s knee) “You know what, he’s got a pretty bruised up knee. They’re actually doing an MRI on it today this afternoon. The initial look was that he was going to be fine, so I would say he’s day-to-day right now ‘til I get back with y’all. Will Demps dislocated an elbow; they were able to reset it. He actually went back into the game. It’s the same elbow that he’s had some issues with in the past year, but it looks like he’s going to be OK.”

Dude, relax I merely correcting your statement. I inserted a cool smiley to insure there was no offense. I like Demps and the way he ball-hawks.

Kenny's head was down his entire 40, needs to keep head up (Deion Sanders said he had never seen that before) on a pivot to recognize & react to use those intincts looks like SS material.

I don't get what you're trying to say...

You said you don't want Kenny because he doesn't bring enough speed to the backfield, but say safety is all about instincts? Well Phillips is known for his instincts, thats his strongest quality as a football player. I think he also play faster then his timed speed, besides a 4.5 isn't slow for a safety.

Tip 4 – Head Alignment

You have probably seen and heard many different ways to align your head while in the 3-point stance. Some coaches want you to keep your head down and looking back at your legs at the start. Other coaches believe that you should have your head up so that your eyes are looking forward. This may work on the football field since you need to see the ball snapped and know what's happening on the field, but we are looking to your body in the best 'exiting' position possible.

It just his technique to try to time his fastest 40.


Just because he do that during the combine doesn't mean he would do it during a game, unless you seen him do it during a game...

I dont think FS or SS usually line up in a three point stance during a game.

Don't matter, the writers must've been mistaken. But its true, my coach told me to put my head down and use it like a spear to help me run faster.

Besides, it a technique to help them on running the 40, they don't do it during a game...

let me ask a couple questions. who holds the "urban legend" forty time (sub 4.2) @ the combine? & who said he had never seen anyone do that before (running technique, never raising head up)?
